Television without pity

I didn't bother to watch the Obamercial, but Jonathan Last over at the Weekly Standard blog did, comparing it (unfavorably, of course) to a middle school assembly. He was surprised about one aspect of it, though:

Never before have I noticed how wonderful commercials are. It's not until you're forced to go without the Geico cavemen for 30 straight minutes that you realize how much you appreciate them.
Yeah, I can do without the Geico cavemen (that sexy Esurance secret agent cartoon chick is another matter—don't you judge me!) but it looks like I really didn't miss much of anything. On the other hand, tonight's episode of Pushing Daisies on ABC—the only network that didn't show the ad—was quite entertaining.
